Our moral, ethical, and intellectual betters in the media have chanced upon a clever way to prevent more gun violence: Tell everybody where the legally owned guns are, and then wait for criminals to steal them!
Two handguns and two pistol permits were stolen from the New City home of a man whose name and address are listed on the website of a local newspaper as possessing gun permits, police said.
The thieves ransacked the house Wednesday night, breaking into two safes on the home’s third floor and stealing a third safe. The guns were in the stolen safe, police said.
Clarkstown police said they had no evidence the burglary was connected to the controversial map.
Yeah, it’s probably just a coincidence. So what if it’s the second time it’s happened this week? That doesn’t mean anything. The Journal News did the right thing by telling everybody exactly where all the registered guns are, and there will be no unforeseen consequences whatsoever. Well, there might be, but it won’t be the newspaper’s fault because their intentions were good.
Besides, those people shouldn’t have guns anyway. Those things are dangerous.
In case you haven’t seen the fine folks at the Journal News showing that they practice what they preach when it comes to gun control, here it is again:
If you’re not convinced that these wonderful people are better than you and know what’s good for you, that’s just because you forgot to shut up.
CORRECTION: In the first house, the owner’s gun wasn’t stolen, but “pry marks were found on what the homeowner described as his gun locker.” The DC Trawler regrets the error.
